RE: Big Data Study
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (“Chamber”) is pleased to submit these comments to
the Office of Science and Technology Policy (“OSTP”) in response to its Request for
Information regarding the “Big Data” study. Given the range of technologies and market
participants involved in big data, the Chamber believes that self-regulation and best business
practices—that are technology neutral—along with consumer education serve as the preferred
framework for protecting consumer privacy and security while enhancing innovation,
investment, and competition essential to big data. Additionally, the Chamber calls on the
Administration to support legislation updating the Electronic Communications Privacy Act.
